Welcome to April’s books round-up, I cannot believe how fast this year is going. Even more so as I’m not into single digit countdown until I have my baby. I hope that everyone really enjoyed World Book Day, despite all of the crazy snow! 

Books to Improve Your Life & Parenting

Reading is a big thing for me, and I cannot imagine a time where I don’t have books in my life. I am often asked how do you make time to read, which is why I really enjoyed Bubba Blue and Me’s post on how she makes time to read

If you have a dream of a simpler, decluttered life then A Journey to a Lifetime has reviewed a book you may want to read, A Simplified Life: A Tactical Tool for Intentional Living looks like a really useful book full of tips and a guide to help you live more simply. 

I think in life for most of us, the ultimate goal is to be happy and for our families to be happy. Dark Tea has written a review of a book called Happiness Hacks, which is a book on research about what makes people happy. While she thought the book could be improved, she has taken away some actions to make her life a happier one, which can only be a good thing.    

Feeling constantly connected to your phone and social media and that you might life a break? An Accountant and a Mum has written about a book called Hands Free Mama. A book about disconnecting from technology and connecting with your family and partner more. But it seems like more than that, connecting more in your life and I have to say looks like a really interesting read. 

Maybe you are just looking for a really good book to read. Jennifer’s Little Books has shared some of the books she likes to read over and over again. Do you know I haven’t read any of them, so I think I need to invest in a least one, how about you? 

Children’s Books and Spring Time

 I’ve reviewed a couple of interesting children’s book on the blog this month. Little Me Tomorrow is about the future and what wonders lie ahead for your child, it is a personalised, handmade book and really lovely. Another review really worthy of a mention is Lunii: My Fabulous Storyteller. Not technically a book, but rather a storytelling speaker that lets your child choose different aspects of the story, both of my children are really enjoying it. 

I’m really enjoying the fact that spring is here at last and very much looking forward to some sunshine. If you would like some books to get your children talking about spring, have a read of Hodge Podge Days has written a great post with Five Brilliant Books About Spring

Got a two year and new some new book inspiration? Devon Mama shares her top ten books for two years olds. It’s got some of our favourites in, even now my 6 year old loves Hairy Maclary. 

Poems are a really nice thing for children to get into. My son has surprised me by really enjoying them, so Cardiff Mummy Says review of The 100 Best Poems for Children which I think looks like a really fantastic book and I may very well have to invest.   

I hope you enjoyed the round-up. If you would like to be included in next month’s round-up I would love to hear from you, you can tweet me @laurasummers or drop me an email
